Logic and Reasoning are the cognitive skills you use to reach rational conclusions, based on information you receive through your different senses (stimuli), and then process that information in order to make decisions. This is often done unconsciously.

Reasoning is actually the process of receiving stimuli and applying logic to arrive at correct conclusions. Cognitive reasoning usually requires longer response times than instinctive decisions that are based on emotional responses.

There is a close relationship between logic and reasoning and they are often used together in order to help you function properly.
